One of Australia’s finest soul and funk exports, The Bamboos launch their 11th studio album, This Is How You Do It at The Corner Hotel for a hometown show with special guests Steppers. Fresh from completing a rapturously received Europe and UK tour which finished with two sell out nights at London’s iconic Jazz Café, The Bamboos are making their way across the country to celebrate their latest release.

Since forming in 2000, The Bamboos have been recognised worldwide as masters of reinventing soul and funk, placing modern songwriting within classic arrangements and production. Since then, they have not stopped moving forward, with multiple shifts in sound and style, and an inventive approach to production that’s simultaneously adventurous yet familiar. The band have connected to both genre purists as much as casual music fans by focusing on what’s important: songwriting, groove and powerful vocals.


Lead by guitarist/producer/songwriter Lance Ferguson and featuring the powerhouse vocals of Australia’s greatest living soul singer, Kylie Auldist, the band recently received their seventh ARIA Award nomination for their 2022 album with Melbourne Symphony orchestra Live At Hamer Hall, their second in a row after their 2021 studio album Hard Up. Their skillful yet infectious songwriting has also seen them nominated for four APRA Awards.
